Quotes

A Treasury spokesman said: "This is a normal corporate situation and all tax that is due is being paid. None of the loans for the properties are based offshore."
"I am quite convinced that the issue of fair tax competition is going to be an increasingly central one in EU tax policy in the years to come. And rightly so. In the EU, we should compete with the rest of the world – on the basis of the strong merits that we have – and not between ourselves on the basis of unfair tax regimes" he concluded

But the position is serious when enterprise becomes the bubble on a whirlpool of speculation. When the capital development of a country becomes the by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done."
"The increased relative majority obtained by the Popular Party cannot be considered to be a victory of Christian Democracy… Even my life-long friend, Guido de Marco, who is above any suspicion of being a Marxist, defined his position on the political spectrum as being centre-left. The dominant group in the Popular Party is now rather more right than centre-right"
